Kings vs. Spurs Prediction
The Spurs will look to put a hurting on the struggling Kings when the two teams clash at 8:30PM ET tonight.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, San Antonio is a 13-point favorite versus Sacramento while the over/under is currently sitting at 210 points. The Spurs had opened as a 12.5-point favorite and the total opened at 209.5 before both the side and total moved a half point.
The Kings are coming off a 104-101 win over the Mavs as a 6.5-point underdog but have failed to cover in four of their last five games. They're also just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games overall, just 1-4 ATS in their last five games against Western Conference opponents and are winless at 0-9 ATS in their last nine games versus a team with a winning record.
Contrast those trends to those for the Spurs, who are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games and have covered in 13 of their last 18 home games. San Antonio has also had plenty of success covering versus Sacramento specifically, going 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus the Kings while the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings between these two teams.
The Spurs will also receive a boost with the return of Manu Ginobili (testicular surgery), who is probable for tonight's game.
